Masters Title is the "Holy Grail" for Australians
An Australian has never been presented with the Masters' green jacket, but the two leading lights of golf Down Under feel it's only a matter of time.

Adam Scott and Jason Day got as close as anyone last year. They tied for second at Augusta National but were denied by South African Charl Schwartzel's dazzling finish, birding the final four holes to win by two strokes.

"It's going to happen, for sure," said Scott. "We have a lot of great players and I think it's just coincidence that it has not happened. One year someone is going to get across the line.

"It's one of those sporting hurdles that no Australian has gotten over, and it may be one of the last ones for the sports that we play in our country, after Cadel Evans won the Tour de France last year."

Jason Day followed up his second place at the Masters with a an ouright second at the U.S. Open. The 24-year-old has played just four events this year, making the cut each time, and returns to Augusta confident his first major win is not too far away.

"I feel like I've learnt a lot. I feel like I'm a lot more comfortable playing out here and playing against the best players in the world," he said.

"I just have get over that hurdle and just put myself into contention, and hopefully I can win one soon.

"For me, this is the Holy Grail to win this tournament. I do believe that an Australian will win it soon."
